From the recording A Rude Awakening

Lyrics

Somewhere out there I hear a church bell ringingSomewhere out there a widow starts to weepOut of nowhere a single flash of lightningSomewhere out there a sentry’s fallen asleepI’ve got a nagging suspicionSomething’s not quite rightThere’s an old superstitionThunder on the left – Trouble tonightWhat’s that sound like the pounding hooves of horses?Who’s that in the shadows lurking at the gate?Rouse the guards – Marshal all your forcesSend out a warning – Pray it’s not too lateSomewhere out there a ship sails on a dark seaSomewhere a drummer boy’s far from homeIn my mind I see a ragtag armyKicking up a cloud of dust on the road to Rome
